Coastal Carolina University is hosting a reading and discussion of Jonathan A.C. Brown’s book, “Muhammad, A Very Short Introduction,” at Lackey Chapel on Tuesday, Oct. 1, at 4:30 p.m. This is the second installment of the ongoing series, “Let’s Talk About It: Muslim Journeys.” Jeffrey Halverson, a CCU assistant professor of philosophy and religious studies, will present and lead the discussion. The event is free and open to the public.
This is the second in a five-part series scheduled to discuss a new book every two weeks at Lackey Chapel. The books can be found in Kimbel Library on the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys. A limited number of each individual title will be given to registered participants. After each event, participants can exchange the book for the next title in the series.
CCU has chosen a theme of “Pathways of Faith” for the reading series that is presented by CCU’s Kimbel Library and Bryan Information Commons and the Department of Philosophy and Religion. The series is in conjunction with “Bridging Cultures,” a grant program of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), to familiarize audiences with the people, places, history, faith and cultures of Muslims in the United States and around the world. Kimbel Library is one of 125 libraries and state humanities councils across the country selected to participate in the project.
The Bridging Cultures Bookshelf is a project of NEH, conducted in cooperation with the ALA Public Programs Office, with support from the Carnegie Corporation of New York. Additional support for the arts and media components was provided by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Arts.
